What to expect

Surrounded by forest, Germany’s oldest and most famous university town is renowned for its baroque Old Town, spirited student atmosphere and idyllic setting on the river Neckar. Heidelberg is one of Germany’s most enchanting cities, so take the chance and visit it with a local guide!

The tour starts in the Old Town, the heart of the city life. Stroll through one of the longest pedestrian areas in Europe and enjoy the wonderful mix of old and new buildings, narrow streets, market squares, shops, restaurants and museums. You will visit the most famous church of Heidelberg, the Church of the Holy Spirit. It is one of the few buildings in town that survived the many wars of the last centuries. Afterwards you will pass by the Old Heidelberg University. Founded in 1386 on instructions of Pope Urban VI, it is the oldest university of Germany. Your guide will also show you the Student Jail, the so-called “Studentenkarzer”, where students were held for minor offences. They were still allowed to attend lectures but had to go back to jail after. In use between 1778 and 1914, the walls tell interesting stories from the incarcerated students who decorated them with poems, writings and images.

You will Wwlk to Heidelberg’s Old Bridge to enjoy amazing views of the castle and to see the bronze monkey. The monkey is said to be a lucky charme. Rubbing the mirror will bring you money, rubbing his fingers will ensure your return to Heidelberg and rubbing the little bronze mice nearby will bring you fertility.
